A student from Pulborough was one of just two pupils at Lancing College to sweep five A*s at A-level today (Thursday August 15).

Hugh Ryan from Pulborough achieved five A*s and will read Natural Sciences at Trinity College, Cambridge.

Jack Angers from Storrington picked up one A* and two As and will read History at St Andrew’s, while Helena Dunlavey also from Storrington gained four As.

Jonathan Gillespie, head master, said: “I congratulate our students on their splendid achievements at A Level. Our Sixth Formers have gained outstanding results in a wide range of the most challenging academic subjects, and they will now go on to study at elite universities both in the UK and further afield.

“These grades represent the culmination of much hard work and enthusiasm on the part of our students who have been encouraged throughout their time at Lancing by inspirational staff.

“A Lancing education combines academic studies with exciting opportunities beyond the curriculum, so that all pupils can develop wide-ranging skills and embrace new challenges which unlock their full potential and which enable them to embark with confidence on their future paths.

“We wish our leavers every happiness and success in the future.”
